Mykasa is the lone remaining signee from the class of 2018 for Louisville, which was the 13th-ranked class in the country. That class included Molly Lockhart and Seygan Robins, all of whom are from Kentucky.

Coach Walz: “The number of extra possessions that she gets us in a ball game is remarkable. Her offensive rebounds, the number of balls she gets a hand on, she just never stops working.”

Breakdown: Mykasa was a combo guard that played the point guard position in high school. Mykasa is a lockdown perimeter defender. Nothing is given freely when she’s around and everything, I mean everything, is earned. Mykasa has a variety of skills that help make her a well-rounded combo guard. Although she lacks a consistent deep ball, she makes up for it with her ability to penetrate and finish in the painted area.

My Take: Perhaps my fondest memory of Mykasa is when and how she committed to Louisville. During pregame while walking back to the layup line, she stopped, showed Coach Walz a Louisville Cardinals bird on her t-shirt, ‘air’ high fived, and then shared a smile.

It’s extremely difficult to watch Mykasa play and not want the best for her. She has sacrificed so many of her own stats for the success of the team, and that might be one of the traits that her teammates admire and appreciate most in regards to her. This year like in years past, don’t look for Mykasa’s impact on a game in the box score, because you won’t find it there. However, where you will find her impact is in the hustle points, second chance opportunities, drawing charges, and frustrating the opposing team’s star player. Mykasa will once again do what is asked of her by Coach Walz and, with Jazmine Jones’ departure to the WNBA, look for Robinson to take a special pride in shutting or slowing down the other team’s star perimeter player.
